We are going to tell you how to add and round in a function in Microsoft Excel today.
Microsoft Excel’s advanced formula functionality allows a single cell to incorporate many functions. This flexibility allows multiple integration functions for powerful and efficient calculations. The ability to add numbers and round them is easily accomplished using a formula. With experience, the power of Excel functions is limited only by creativity.
How to add and round in a function in Microsoft Excel?
- Identify the functions to be combined in a single formula. To add numbers in Microsoft Excel, use the “sum()” function. To round numbers, use the “round()” function.
- Consider the location of cells containing data you want to add and round. For example, consider that cells A1 and A2 contain numbers. You can aggregate these numbers together and round the final result.
- Click in the cell where you want to create the formula.
- Type an equal sign (“=”) to start the formula. Complete the first part of this formula by typing “sum(a1:a2)”. (The quotation marks are excluded from the actual formula). Press the Enter key to execute the formula.
- Double-click the same formula cell to edit it. Enclose the entire formula, except for the opening equals sign, in parentheses.
- Type the word “back” at the beginning of the first parenthesis and after the equal sign.
- Move the cursor to the end of the formula using the right arrow key. Stop before the end parenthesis.
- Type a comma.
- Type a number after the comma that corresponds to the number of digits you want to round the result to. The number 0 will round the result to the nearest whole number; the number 1 will be rounded to the first decimal place. Each decimal place further to the right of the decimal places is an increment of 1.
- Press Enter. The above sum is now rounded by the addition formula.
Tips and warnings
The most confusing aspect of combining functions into a single formula is the arrangement of parentheses. Each function has its own set of parentheses, and the presence of many parentheses can be a strain on the eye.
